2nd International Henry Moseley-SESAME-JSPS (Japan Society for Promotion of Science) X-ray summer school will be held in ITAP (Institute of Theoretical and Applied Physics) facilities in Turunç-Marmaris, Turkey. The summer school will focus on production of x-rays and their utilization in various branches of sciences, including physics, chemistry, biology, geology, engineering, materials science, pharmacology, archeology, paleontology, and medicine.

The school will cover introductory courses related to accelerator-based sources, x-ray optics for synchrotron radiation, x-ray diffraction, x-ray spectroscopy, and x-ray imaging. Lectures will be given by an international group of scientists mainly from synchrotrons across the world. Lectures will be held between 9:00-12:00 and 14:00-17:00 hrs, and there will be homework sessions after dinner are between 20:00-22:00 o’clock. Students can relax or go to beach between 17:00-19:00 hrs. Two days of the school will be devoted to hands-on data analysis and visualization for some lectures including powder diffraction, photoemission spectroscopy, structural biology, X-ray absorption fine structure and X-ray fluorescence analysis. On the second day students will be expected to give presentations on the simulations they performed on the day before. The school will provide computers with data analysis programs, but students are encouraged to bring their computers as well.

The school aims to host 50 graduate level students and will be open to international participation. Acceptance will be based on student’s statement of interest, preparation level, and letters of recommendation. The subject matter of students can be from any of the areas given above. Accepted students will have accommodation on-site or at a nearby facility and meals will be also available on-site. No travel support can be provided to national/international participants.
